Pesa Jaguar attacks switcher market19 September 2010
Pesa’s new Jaguar-3 high definition matrix switcher is looking to help customers get a better grip on video transport needs.
The 64×64 matrix switcher routes all SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals and supports embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVB/ASI broadcast sources.
The company says it is perfect for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI switching applications in digital cinema, telemedicine, high-end presentation rooms, satellite imaging, command centres, and simulation/ visualisation environments.
It occupies only 2RU but supports standard data rates from 50Mbps up to 3Gbps, and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalised; and with standard SMPTE formatted outputs, each signal is auto-sensed and re-clocked to the appropriate transport stream.
Also new from Pesa at the show was the Vidblox 3G-SL-F which receives coax or fibre optic 3G-SDI serial digital video signals over a single fibre or coax cable and converts SMPTE 259M, 292M, or 424M compliant signals into a DVI-I or component analogue video output.
